Traveling in Africa – Trip Planner

Updated on

Destinations in Africa with ReflectionsEnroute.comAfrica is for us one of those places that is so large, the 2nd largest continent in the world, that we just can’t even grasp its size and diversity. We have been to a few places in northern Africa and a few in southern Africa and some of the island countries. They are vastly different.  Everything from the landscape, to the climate, people, food, wildlife is different.

We have not explored near enough of this continent and want to do so much more in the future.  For me, growing up in an American family all I really knew about Africa before traveling there was that they had lions and tigers and…giraffes!  Oh my!  From the time that I could express my wishes I’ve wanted to go on safari.  Jim and I did this a few years ago and it definitely ranks up there as one of the most amazing and memorable trips that we’ve taken.  We just can’t wait to do it again!

We have a lot to do.  We have only been to 10 of the 54 countries.  Wow! We have so much more to do.

Botswana is one of my all-time favorite countries. There are so many animals that’s it’s easy to find what you are looking for. A safari in this amazing country is a trip of a lifetime.

Egypt was the first country we visited in Africa. We were lucky, because Jim’s sister was living there at the time. She really gave us some local insight and advice.

Morocco is one of those countries that is very good at marketing itself. Well, why wouldn’t it be? It’s gorgeous with exotic scenes of confusing souks, amazing colorful mosiac tilings, people offering the sweetest tea, Roman ruins, and so much more, you can’t help but want to go there. Let me tell, Morocco does not disappoint.
